Derailing My Train of Thought by Thomas Wightman
Says Thomas about this project: “The final book sculpture of my major project series. Like the previous two sculptures it uses a visual metaphor to convey the emotions of obsessive-compulsive disorder, and embodies my research by visualising an expression used by a sufferer of OCD. The expression was ‘derailing my train of thought’, because the person felt that the rituals they had to perform were disrupting their day. Where the compulsions and worry would side track them from doing everyday activities.
To convey this metaphor the sculpture shows a train travelling on a journey that has become disrupted, leading it to derail from its set path. Typography was used on the tracks for the title of the piece, also type was used for the coal. In the scene it shows the coal cart tipping over where the type has become mixed up to symbolise the mixed emotions during anxiety and panic”.
The Goose Girl by Arthur Rackham, from Snowdrop and Other Tales by the Bros. Grimm (1920).

Sometimes people have a hard time understanding what a happy relationship between two people who obvs think the other is awesome looks like.
We think this is one great (and holy bananas, so freaking hilarious) example.
Not only is this one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen all day, but it’s a must-watch for fellow karaoke lovers.
Is it too much to ask that I hope these two live happily ever after FOREVER?
This is how you do life. This is doing life right.
How pleasing this is. By 4’46 even this black heart was slightly grayer.
This is one of the best things I’ve seen all day. I mean, it is only eight in the morning, but all the same.
